It has been going on in pro sports for many years now. The sporting leagues get involved with these large suppliers that hire these Generation post-graduates thinking they have all the worlds solutions because they get a graduate degree / without understanding the market/business they are dealing with.
If anyone with a sporting mind was working for these companies and was working on a bomber jersey. The first thing that should come out of there mouth '' people in Winnipeg want the Royal Blue Jerseys. They represent the city and the history and connection with it's fans unlike any other sporting apparel'......
they come up with some garbage looking atari tv scrambled helmet/jersey --- AND years ago this ridiculous St. Rams knockoff that has no place in part of the Blue Bomber history.
If I was the CFL and the Blue Bombers I would have thrown it right back at them and tell them to '' F'off'''
Why would the BB or CFL accept anything but what the fans of the team want? Why accept anything less than perfect? They just sit there and say ''oh ok thats how it has to be'' poor leadership from the CFL NHL, NBA, NFL to keep accepting anything less than perfection.
You just know some idiot at NIKE went to the Packers, Raiders, Red Wings, Canadiens and said ''i think its time we look at a different direction'' you know it and I know it this probably happened. And they probably got a dirty look and was asked to leave.
It's the fault of the GenX and 2000's graduated youths that believe a Degree is their ticket to excellence that this is the new modern world that people need to follow suit.
And it will never end until somebody makes an example out of them.
